Prison break drama Please Give Me a Pair of Wings 请赐我一双翅膀 airs on Tencent today. Starring Ju Jingyi, Aaron Yan, Zhang Yuxi, Han Dong, Merxat, and Wang Yitong, the series airs every Tuesday-Saturdays on Tencent here today (so far not region blocked) . More stills, trailer, and a weird official plot that seems to have nothing to do with the drama here.
Prison break action flick or inspirational female educational-attainment film? Either way, it’ll probably end up being mostly a romance.
In what looks like Prison Break meets Orange is the New Black, Ju Jingyi, Aaron Yan, Zhang Yuxi, Han Dong, and Merxat star in Republican-era Please Give Me a Pair of Wings 请赐我一双翅膀. There are two versions of the plot, both from very official sources, so I’m not sure which one is real, but one that the Baidu Baike and the trailer seem to suggest the series features the female lead hanging out and eventually teaming up with other prisoners to break out of jail after being accused of murder while her friends try to clear her name from the outside.
Making a rare drama appearance, the alluring Jiang Yiyan stars as the serenely beautiful Shanghai songstress who simply wishes to be a schoolgirl. Caught between a seemingly perfect innocent first love with a student and a treacherous relationship with one of the biggest mob bosses of the Shanghai Bund, the girl whose name means “forever fragrant” ends up playing a key role in the turbulent changes sweeping over Republican-era Shanghai.
